The two new lakes are a potential habitat for microbial life…

TESS readies for takeoff

Satellite developed by MIT aims to discover thousands of nearby exoplanets, including at least 50 Earth-sized ones. There are potentially thousands of planets that lie just outside our solar system -- galactic neighbors that could be rocky worlds or more tenuous collections of gas and dust. Where are these closest exoplanets located? And which of them might we be able to probe for clues to…

NASA sees ex-Tropical Cyclone Iris now better organized

IMAGE: On April 11, NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible image of the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Iris in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean, that showed a circulation. view more  Credit: Credits: NOAA/NASA Goddard Rapid Response Team Satellite imagery showed that the former tropical cyclone known as Iris appeared better organized and more circular. On April 11, the remnant low pressure area that was Tropical Cyclone…

NASA finds wind shear slamming Tropical Cyclone Keni

IMAGE: The VIIRS instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured this visible image of Tropical Cyclone Keni on April 11. The image showed wind shear pushing the bulk of clouds to... view more  Credit: Credits: NOAA/NASA Rapid Response Team NASA satellite imagery showed that Tropical Cyclone Keni was being battered by vertical wind shear. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite revealed that wind shear was pushing the clouds…

SPHERE reveals fascinating zoo of discs around young stars

IMAGE: New images from the SPHERE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope are revealing the dusty discs surrounding nearby young stars in greater detail than previously achieved. They show a bizarre... view more  Credit: ESO/H. Avenhaus et al./E. Sissa et al./DARTT-S and SHINE collaborations The SPHERE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile allows astronomers to suppress the brilliant light of nearby stars in…

NASA watching stubborn remnants of ex-Tropical Cyclone Iris

IMAGE: On April 10 the VIIRS instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured a true-color image of Iris' elongated remnants in the South Pacific Ocean. view more  Credit: Credits: NOAA/NASA Goddard Rapid Response Team Former Tropical Cyclone Iris continues to linger in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Queensland, Australia. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the remnants of Iris on April 10. On…

Tiny distortions in universe’s oldest light reveal strands in cosmic web

Scientists have decoded faint distortions in the patterns of the universe's earliest light to map huge tubelike structures invisible to our eyes - known as filaments - that serve as superhighways for delivering matter to dense hubs such as galaxy clusters. The international science team, which included researchers from the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley, analyzed data from…

NASA’s GPM sees Keni following Tropical Cyclone Josie’s track

Another tropical cyclone called Keni has formed in the South Pacific Ocean between Vanuatu and Fiji and the data from the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM found heavy rainfall occurring in the new storm. On April 10, the Fiji Meteorological Service issued several warnings on Tropical Cyclone Keni. A Hurricane Warning remains in force for Ono-I-Lau. A Gale Warning remains in force for the…

NREL opens large database of inorganic thin-film materials

An extensive experimental database of inorganic thin-film materials that organizes a decade's worth of research at the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is now publicly available. The High Throughput Experimental Materials (HTEM) Database contains more than 140,000 sample entries collected by NREL scientists investigating inorganic materials for use in advanced energy applications, such as thin-film solar cells. The entries provide details about…

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone Keni develop in the South Pacific

IMAGE: On April 9 at 0230 UTC (April 8 at 10:30 p.m. EDT) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite saw Keni between Vanuatu to the west, and Fiji to the east. The VIIRS... view more  Credit: Credits: NOAA/NASA Goddard Rapid Response Team A low pressure area that has been lingering near Vanuatu in the Southern Pacific Ocean has consolidated into a tropical cyclone. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed…
